With 1.7 million copies of the Dexter novels sold, and ever-increasing critical acclaim, Jeff Lindsay returns to his groundbreaking and beloved character with his most entertaining book yet. Get ready for a grisly send-up of Hollywood, and a full dose of dark Dexter wit.
Lights. Camera. Mayhem. You won't find this story on television.
Hollywood gets more than it bargained for when television's hottest star arrives at the Miami Police Department and develops an intense, professional interest in a camera-shy blood spatter analyst named Dexter Morgan.
Mega-star Robert Chase is famous for losing himself in his characters. When he and a group of actors descend on the Miami Police Department for "research", Chase becomes fixated on Dexter Morgan, the blood spatter analyst with a sweet tooth for doughnuts and a seemingly average life. To perfect his role, Chase is obsessed with shadowing Dexter's every move and learning what really makes him tick. There is just one tiny problem...Dexter's favorite hobby involves hunting down the worst killers to escape legal justice, and introducing them to his special brand of playtime. It's a secret best kept out of the spotlight and away from the prying eyes of bloated Hollywood egos if Dexter wants to stay out of the electric chair. The last thing he needs is bright lights and the paparazzi...but even Dexter isn't immune to the call of fame.
Jeff Lindsay's razor-sharp, devilish wit, and immaculate pacing prove that he is in a class of his own, and this new novel is his most masterful creation yet.

Almost from the beginning this was a disappointment. The signature sharp wittiness of the series was soft in this book, clues were so broad so early that Dexter seemed dim to have missed them so completely, logic errors-occasionally present but forgivable in other books in the series- were so glaring as to be distracting. Love the series but not this entry into it.
Yes, Dexter is always fun to read
Jeff Lindsay did a really good job of showing that even though Dexter is the hero he is not a nice guy.
Yes, it left you hanging
Great book - it's unbelievable how many twists and turns are in these books that take place in the life of Dexter...This book left me wanting more answers - hope there's another coming!
I've read all of his books - they just keep getting better
I love a good book...
Jeff Lindsay has completed this series with such a wonderful twist. I love how he resolved my angst at having hopes for Dexter to get away with all he has done. Lindsay's reading of his own book was fun as he knew exactly how each character should sound and the emphasis of their dialog.
Yes. The characters are deep and well developed and the story-telling is superb since the author speaks his own words.
Dexter evolves in little ways in each book, but big changes are afoot in this one. Mr. Lindsay's description of the inner workings of Dexter's mind and his Dark Passenger's are sometimes chilling - does he know the material too well, you think.
Keep more coming!
+ 11. I am 3 hours into this audio book and it is great.
I haven't finished it yet but the story is terrific and its building.
Jeff is a terrific narrator and brings a unique voice to each character. Don't miss it.
Jeff's understated wit and/or Dexter's sardonic/sarcastic remarks are very funny.
If you like Dexter and Jeff's Dexter books, this purchase is a no brainer ! It delivers !
Dexter's brilliance is somewhat absent in this book. As though he has lost his mojo from the first chapter, rather than facing all his demons at the end of the book in some epic awesome finale. A little sad considering the incredible and complex being that Dexter has proven to be over the first few books. It's as though the author killed him at the start of the book and Dexter spends the rest of the subsequent chapters crawling helplessly to the bitter end, while gasping his last.
A great listen overall. It finally looks like Dexter is headed toward a "normal" life.
Dexter is infatuated by a movie star
Although I love all of the Dexter series, I was disappointed with the ending and can only hope there is another book in the works, because if this really is the final cut, it was a terrible way to end it all.
This really is another good devious Dexter novel. I have seen other reviews that were not so good, but I made the purchase anyway. My only disappointment was the ending, but I will let you decide for yourself.
I mostly likes me some sword and sorcery, not really in to sifi but theirs a place in my library for anything from John Scalzi.
If it had not been writen.
Lord of souls
If it's a Dexter book yes.
None, seem a trashy wrap up to the series or getting rid of main characters.
This the second to worst Dexter book, in the dark being the worst. Dexter just don't act like Dexter in this book more like a kid with a crush. Rather then being cool, smart and controlled. Here he was swooning, slow and impulsive. And the killer was way to obvious Dex and the police should have know without thinking no matter how incompetent Anders is reported to be.
Nothing....just need the next installment ASAP
The moment when Dexter realizes that Rita is dead
Dexter of coarse
just wished the ending was not left in the air
HURRY UP WITH THE NEXT ONE JEFF!!!
